FANTASTIC FOUR #30 (1964): 1st Diablo

This issue introduces Diablo, who is a pretty major villain but…I’m not a big fan.

He’s like a magician, making flowers magically appear.

He makes Thing gorgeous as part of a master plan to turn Ben Grimm against his team-mates.

Another story where the team breaks up (although coming this early in the series, it’s not tired, overused trope yet) and another story where Ben Grimm wants to look normal.  I don’t buy that he would sell himself out for a cure, but whatever.

The team looks for him.

Sometimes Reed is gross.

They fight, but eventually Ben goes back to being a member of the FF and to being rocky again.

Then they fight Diablo.
